Forum: sflan Subject: Where can I get info on buying a node?

Does someone out there sell them as ready made units? How much are they? What are the requirements for installation (power, height, line of sight, weather protection, etc?) It looks like I'm relatively close to some other nodes and this looks like a great projet.

Hi,

The nodes cost $1000. It comes with everthing included, even a nice person to put it up for you. The power requirements are comparable to a lightbulb. The box and antennas need to sit on a poll up to about 10 feet off the roof, although this varies location to location depending on line of sight access. I am not sure exactley about the weather proofing specifics, but they seem really sturdy. I have heard no complaints about the rain interfering with the hardware. If you are interested in purchasing, please let me know--we can chat more about it offline.

thanks,
Astrid
